't start hitting it earlier because the obama brand of hope and change was so strong. like you said it, the way sarah palin said it, that hopi changey thing, he really reminded us that that wa what's obama promised. gwen: when i covered him, he campaigned and did defeat an income befpblet you can't just run on change though if you're the guy with the job? >> no, that's what he delivered. you run on i promised to end the wars, i promised to help the economy and it's heading in the right direction i promised i would get you health care and i passed health care the gwen: let's talk about where the candidates are really going. there are some head-fakes this week. we're going to compete in north carolina, not in minnesota. but today the president gave a series of interviews to local tv stations and about who he talked to -- iowa, wisconsin, north carolina, florida, eff last one of them battle ground states. romney has been campaigning in iowa, this weekend in virginia if the storm doesn't knock him off, in florida and wisconsin. this is what it's all boiled down to, molly. >> absolutely. y
. now, the obama campaign says the change was taken out of an a abundance of caution and so that police and emergency crews could stay focused on helping preepal with the storm. >>> first lady michelle obama has canceled a rally in another swing state, new hampshire. it was scheduled for next week in durham. the campus is closing for the storm. next hour we're talking with a member of the political operation there about the four electoral votes in new hampshire and why they are so crucial. >>> forget about the campaign events alone, there are fears that the storm could prevent some people from voting altogether. edison electric institute warned customers that sandy cou ay couk power out for seven to ten days, and we're ten days out here, which could include the election day. flooding and extensive damage could keep people from making it to the polls. just look at this picture we put together showing some of the campaign layers impacted by a major storm hitting the east coast. now, as we mentioned, campaign events across the country are already being delayed or canceled already altogethe
offered was more cries for change wrapped in a series of unrelenting attacks on president obama who apparently bears sole responsibility for everything that has gone wrong in washington the fast four years. >> this is a year of a choice. americans want to see changes. four years ago people voted for a partisan president and washington is in gridlock because of it president obama reminds us that he inherited a terrible economy. it's not what he inherited but with the misguided policies that slowed the recovery and caused millions of americans to endure lengthy poverty. >> eliot: with change in the latest theme for the drive to the white house smith fired back saying, the only ching romney is offering is to take us back to the same failed policies that crashed our economy in the first place. president obama made a similar observation a little more colorfully when he said, kids have have good instincts. they look at the other guy and say well there is a bser, i can tell. president obama is rattled on the defensive. he's running on empty and has nothing left but attacks and insults. wit
on the themes he talked about everything. he is adopting a lot of what president obama was saying. big change is needed from the next administration and because there was a huge military presence egegland air force base and pensacola naval station, he would talk about the potential defense cuts under sequestration and obama trimming back. we are about to hit the national anthem and i probably shouldn't talk over that. and another significant thing happening today. early voting begins in florida today. get out and vote before election day. historically republicans had the edge with absentee vote and democrats had the vote with them voting early. >> john, thank you very much and continue our live team coverage with ed henry in new hampshire with the obama campaign. ed, what can you tell us. >> this is part of the president's final case to the american people. and monday is putting the pedal to the medal and he will be down in florida and starting and going late sunday and be down there on monday. starting here in new hampshire. bottom line is the adout. and his case with mitt romney. remember t
than me. [ laughter ] >> jennifer: charlie on this mtv interview, at another point, president obama was asked about climate change, and he had this to say. >> we're not moving as fast as we need to, and this is an issue that future generations, mtv viewers are going to have to be dealing with, even more than the older generation is. >> jennifer: to me that is very interesting. do you think that environmentalists might see a general statement like that as just kicking the can down the road? >> i think environmentalists saw him kicking the can down the road by the fact that we had four debates and climate change didn't come up once. in the foreign policy debate teacher's unions and the national debt got more at attention that climate change did. and this week they have a result of climate change blowing right up their shorts on the east coast. so future historians assuming they are any, are going to look at this time in history and think we're all out of our minds. >> charlie the hurricane is coming for that reason when we all know that it is because governor
that even with those demographic changes, it's still going to be a struggle for president obama to get that 34 point margin again. >> peter, you spent a lot of time on college campuses. talk about the ground game you see. what are campaigns doing to try to get younger people to the polls? >> i was just in ohio and the talk among the political class there is how obama's really targeted his campaign visits to college campuses. ohio state, ohio university, kent state, bowling green. to sort of draw in these folks and since early vote has started, they can just bus students and young people who come to these rallies over to early voting locations in these counties. so obama has sort of done that while leaving the campaign appearances and sort of blue collar areas to people like bill clinton and joe biden. but young people, they aren't watching tv, they aren't consuming media in the same way that older voters are. only somewhere between 24% and 28% of young people, according to pew, watched your traditional television. so the m campaigns are targetin them digitally. social is big in this el
are going to be vulnerable. we've already seen a change, this just came out publicly, anderson. he was supposed to head out to travel on monday to florida. his first stop. he's now going to be traveling on monday, as you know michelle obama canceled a new hampshire appearance on monday or pardon me, tuesday, because of weather concerns. vice president joe biden was supposed to be heading to virginia beach tomorrow. he's canceled that. so i think we shouldn't be surprised. they're keeping their eye on the storm and i would expect we'll be seeing more changes. >>> let us know what you think. follow me on twitter. i'm tweeting tonight. >>> more raw politics next, starting with who's got the enthusiasm edge. four years ago, obama voters were fired up ready to go. four years later, are voters fired up to fire him? gary tuchman takes the pulse. we're also talk to mary matalin and james carville. how did i get here? dumb luck? or good decisions? ones i've made. ones we've all made. about marriage. children. money. about tomorrow. here's to good decisions. who matters most to you says the
-romney ads show images of president obama. >> you can't change washington from the inside. >> republicans use sad, depressed faces in 21% of their ads, mostly to illustrate unemployment. democrats only use that tactic in 1% of their ads. but democrats went heavy on the elderly, using elderly voices or images in 38% of their ads. >> i was suddenly 60 years old. i had no health care. >> a topic republicans largely stayed away from. despite the emphasis on the hispanic vote, only 2% of ads from either side were in spanish during this period. the use of charts, numbers and statistics was used heavily by both groups. 65% of time for democrats, 79% for republicans. the american flag always an iconic image in political ads was shown in 29% of democratic ads. the flag appeared in just 6% of republican ads but in a much different light. talk about being worried about what he called the never-ending security threats in benghazi, specifically mentioned the rise in islamic extremism. >> republican groups used clips from newspaper headlines in 18% of their ads. >> mitt romney would have let us go under. l
of this continuing crisis hardly merit notice. barack obama pledges change but touts dodd-frank, a bulky, watered-down version of financial reform that scarcely makes a ripple in the vast sea of corruption and abuse. mitt romney campaigns as the f banker's pal and says he'll make dodd- frank disappear altogether. if you're appalled by this, so is the man who held the thankless job of special inspector general in arge of i policing tarp, the bailt's troubled asset ren.ef pla before he signed on, neil p barofsky was a federal prosecutor in new york chasing white-collar criminals and dr d lords. he busted 50 members of a columbian guerrilla group deeply involved in narcotics trafficking. at tarp, he was assigned to ferret out waste, fraud and abuse. the banks didn't make it easy, and neither did the u.s. government. neil barofsky tells this story in his book, "bailout: an inside account of how washington abandoned main street while rescuing wall street." he is now a senior fellow and adjunct professor at the new york university school of law. neil barofsky, welcome. >> thank you. >> when you were
and they think he can come to the smaller ones and build a fire wall. we see the obama team make changes because of the hurricane. vice president biden cancelled events he would do in coastal virginia. they don't want to get in the way of the storm. emergency personnel would have to deal with that. and then the president is leaving washington on sunday in stead of monday to get to orlando on monday . heap's geth briefings and he has to make sure it is not a hurricane kathryn where he is out campaigning and. >> and thank you very much. >> and pending attack targeting american soil over seas. we heard it before. this one was stopped in its this u.s. embassy was not the terrorist only target. and the respects behind it. and also, tens of millions of people in this storm's path. and new warnings by the hour. you are looking live now as it moves n. and that is it a reporter on the field. southeast coast feeling its power. elizabeth is on the beach in north carolina. hurricane sandy is beating down on the outer banks of north carolina. we'll havelet details for you after the break. where others fail,
it that obama. even though we getittle changes we still go 35 miles per hour when we should be going 70. people though the rest of the world is not right. the first abate mitt romney proved he can meet -- lead the country. lou: argably he will change the history with that performance. what can be done by president romney to change the trajectory of this economy with more than a job creation achine? >> number one data piss-off the fiscal cliff. so we don't have a severe recession but simplify the tax code. fire ben bernanke to get somebody who realizes to cheapen the dollar is not the way to wealth. >> he could force him out. >> harry truman showed you could fire the fed chairman. [laughter] as well as a general. [laughter] lou: none of that has the immediate effect of those who have suffered undr this administration. those who don't have a job and are underemployed givg up then we have a group of ceos speaking up for t multinationals we would like to go to the simpson thing. we want to raise taxes. reject it -- rejected by both republicans and democrats. we hear from business leaders they com u
, is president obama in that answer offering major changes? it doesn't sound like it. that's a big problem for it, and mitt romney is trying to capitalize on that. this is what he says on the campaign trail. >> this is a time when america faces big challenges. we have a big election. we have a president who bring big changes. i will and he won't. >> cenk: well, the president has 11 days. he has got to some how tell the american people, hey, don't worry, the next four years will be much, much better because we have great positive change on the way. i'm not sure that he can do that. it doesn't mean that he'll lose but it will help his case in the next 11 days. let me bring in my rowdy friends, michael shure, jayar jackson, ana kasparian we're all here. ben let me start with you. do you agree with this diagnosis or am i getting it a little wrong. >> as usual cenk, you're getting it a little wrong. yes, essentially. i wasn't listening to everything that you were saying. we've known each other for a long time. i'm tired of you. [ chuckling ] what the president is doing now we're not talking about poli
or authentic. >> i voted for president obama, because i do see the change. i do see us digging ourselves out of the hole. >> so there you have it, just a sampling of the voters we've been speaking to. very tight. the voters here just as closely divided as the polls show north carolina is. but you see that focus on the economy, questions of character, and really a discussion about mitt romney heading back to the center. all on the forefront of folks' minds here. >> interesting to hear why they were making their decisions, too. i'm wondering with hurricane sandy slowly edging inward there we know the president and his opponent have spent millions of dollars trying to get the word out. now that could change as we shift to covering this hurricane. does he expect any effect with voting, especially early voting? >> early voting is the key. it's a core strategy for both campaigns. we're already seeing a start-up effect. yesterday the state put out an advisory saying two counties would be suspended today. they'd be shut down out of an abundance of caution. early voting continues in the rest of the s
in the national polls. the wild card here, the change that took place in october -- the biggest statistic that jumps out is people started judging romney the winner on the economy. he's opened now a high lead over obama on the economy. if that overrides their concerns about his personality and character. then there's not much obama can do. but they had had luck with romney's personal negatives before that. so there's potential there. >> i wonder -- i was thinking about this with the appearances in ohio. looking at the economic numbers in ohio. it's been funny at the personality level to see john kasich talk about how much better things have gotten under his leadership. we'd really to prefer you say things are going badly. as the campaign shrinks down to a small number of swing states and they have that improving economic numbers problem as it were on the republican side in florida and ohio, does that change the type of argument they need to make about change? about why mitt romney is the guy who should be trusted to do things differently than barack obama? >> they are hitting it there. ba
: but that night, obama must have believed the bipartisan change he had promised was now within sight. >> americans sent a message to the world that we have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of red states and blue states. we are, and always will be, the united states of america. >> you have, in obama's case, gone within four years from being an illinois state politician to the most famous person on earth, and you have confidence in both your judgment about what's the right way to go and your ability to make it that way. >> america can change. our union can be perfected. and what we've already achieved gives us hope for what we can and must achieve tomorrow. >> if he was too confident about being able to bring people together, one can understand, given the way he'd spent the previous four years. >> this is our moment. yes we can. thank you, god bless you, and may god bless the united states of america. (crowd cheering) (crowd chanting): yes we can! >> mitt romney, fresh from running the winter olympics... >> narrator: just three weeks after the olympics ended in march of 20
and declining take home pay. that's what four years of obama has produced. america is ready for change, for jobs and more take home pay and we're going to bring it to them. [applause] now you've know we've had four presidential debates and there is nothing in what the president proposed that has any prospect of meeting the challenges of the times. rising taxes will not ignite the economy. in fact it will destroy 700,000 jobs. a new stimulus, three years after the recession officially ended that may spare government but it won't stimulate the private sector than did the stimulus four years ago. and cutting $1 trillion from the military would kill jobs and the defense. this is not time for the policies that have failed us. can time for change that measure up to the moment and can bring the american families certain that the future will be better than the past. [applause] if paul ryan and i are elected we will endeavor with all our hearts and energy to restore america. instead of more spending and more borrowing and more taxes, we'll renew our faith in the power of free people. we'll have a plan fo
it will determine if changes to the early-voting schedule are necessary to protect the public. >> meanwhile, president obama and mitt romney continued on the campaign trail today as hurricane sandy heads for the united states. with just 10 days to go until election day, the president greeted supporters in new hampshire today, where he took a swipe at governor romney's promises of big change, saying he's offering a rerun of past g.o.p. poll sills. the obama camp has yet to cancel any stops because of the hurricane, but the president's team says they are keeping a close eye on sandy, just in case the president has to respond to disaster areas. and for mitt romney, well, he joined florida senator marco rubio in pensacola. romney expressed confidence that he'll soon be occupying the white house, telling the crowd of 10,000, "we're going to win this." >> very interesting. all right. back to sandy, which has been the talk for the last couple of days. i tried to vote early today in towson and the same thing, people are trying to get a jump on the storm. >> i ran into people in the parking lot in t
with obama is going to fix it, but they're equally unsure four years of changing track with mitt romney is going to change it. so you have people, like me, like you, like just about everybody, caught in the middle. what is the right way to go. >> all right. miguel in denver, we'll continue to watch your travels. really great work this week, miguel. and also, ali velshi, in a few hours, we'll up up on "your money." nice to see you, ali. >>> up next, china, a dominant topic at this week's presidential debate. we'll tell you whether china is more threat or opportunity. but first, there are more than 1.3 billion people in china. that makes up what percentage of the world's population? is it a, 9%, b, 19%, c, 29%, no googling. i'm going to tell you on the other side of the break. begin. tomato, obviously. haha. there's more than that though, there's a kick to it. wahlalalalallala! smooth, but crisp. it's kind of like drinking a food that's a drink, or a drink that's a food, woooooh!

that were scheduled for this weekend. the obama campaign says biden's schedule was changed so the police and emergency crews could stay focused on people and helping them through this storm. first lady michelle obama has canceled a campaign rally in another critical swing state, new hampshire. it was scheduled for next week at the university of new hampshire in durham, the campus there. the campus is closing for the storm. >> there are fears the storm could prevent some people from even voting altogether. edison electric institute warned customers sandy could knock out power for seven to ten days, and that would include election day. or could. power outages could affect electronic voting and keep people from making it to the polls. sandy isn't just a dangerous hurricane, obviously with that it could have huge political ramifications. take a look at this picture we've put together for you. it shows some of the campaign layers impacted by the east coast. we've already started seeing campaign events canceled. we're anticipating huge travel delays in addition to impacting millions of travele
not be surprised if we have a number of changes on the horizon as both president obama and mitt romney monitor this storm and its effects. alex? >> well, the president, he was doing some interviews yesterday. he did a lot of them. and it's going from local market to local market that way. what's he saying? >> reporter: well, alex, a number of things that we've sort of gleaned from these interviews that he did. he is reaching out to young voters, to women voters, to independents. one of his key messages, though, is for folks to get out and vote early. this is what he said to our colorado affiliate yesterday. take a listen. >> i've fought for middle class families in colorado and all across the country. that's the kind of president i think you want. and i'm looking forward to having the privilege to serving another four years. a lot of it's going to depend on colorado, so i hope everybody takes advantage of early vote in colorado. you guys are always ahead of the curve when it comes to voting. >> reporter: alex, of course colorado is a key battle ground state. but that is a key part of the obama
stabilized, that president obama seems to be about where he was before that first debate that really changed up the race. the obama campaign focusing very hard on their ground game, getting out those early voters to the polls. we saw video of president obama doing just that last week. and for them it's always been a state by state race. this idea of momentum versus the cold reality of the electoral map. >> okay. i understand that susan's back plugged in with us. susan i was asking about your sort of big picture perspective given how much you've covered politics. any parallels to draw from previous elections? where do you think we stand right now? what's your sense of it? >> my ninth election this feels like one of the closest ever. feels really like 2000. because as i just heard rachel saying, the president was in pretty good shape before that first debate that has really changed since then the momentum since then has been on romney's side. what that means is in these last ten days things like that final jobs report next friday or hurricane sandy, these could make enough difference to tilt a
in virginia beach and one with michelle obama in new hampshire. we'll keep you posted on other changes. diane? >> okay, thank you, jake. could be messy out there. >>> and, as president obama, as jake said, looks to secure the young voters, governor romney is ahead by about the same margin in a very different group. and counting on them to show up and vote. abc's david muir tells us who. he's traveling with the governor in ohio tonight. david? >> reporter: hey, diane. great to see you. after the governor visited iowa today, he is back here in the buckeye state. he needs ohio to unlock the map on election night. and in that new abc news poll you speak of, a key group that might help him get there. mitt romney's closing argument in one of the battlegrounds he needs. >> i'm counting on iowa. >> reporter: today, romney delivering his economic message. a message our new poll shows is resonating the loudest among one key group -- white men. in fact, so much has been made of the powerful women's vote, but it is men who are driving mitt romney's numbers. romney leads the president with white men 66% t
romney today promised big changes if he's elected, in a speech billed as his closing argument in the campaign. e acsesed president obama of shrinking from the major issues facing the nation. romney promised to offer policies that mched the scale of today's economic challenges. he again touted his five point plan for economic growth,ch including promoting small businesses, cutting the federal budget, and keeping taxes low. >> this is not the time to double down on trickle down government policies that have fail us. it's time for new bold changes that measure up to the moment and that can bring america's families the certainty that the future will be better than the past. >> tom: the obama campaign pushed back against the speech, a spokeswoman today sa while y governor romneoris promising change, it's change that will lead us back to the same failed policies that crashed our economy in the first place. is >> tom: in cities across the u.s., the biggest mortgage lender, wells fargo looking to mend its image after accusations it steered minority homebuyers into sub-prime loans. the
